Justyna SWIETY-ERSETIC (POL) - gold

On her win, and her busy evening schedule:

"I am shocked, really surprised. The only complication is that I have to get ready for the 4x400 relay which starts in 90 minutes."

On assessing her victory:

"This time is amazing. It is the second fastest time in Polish history and also the first European gold for our country at this distance, so it means a lot. Even Irena SZEWINSKA, who passed away this year, got only bronze so it is very emotional and important for me."
